The legend of King Arthur is being plundered yet again in The Green Knight, the latest film from A Ghost Story director David Lowery.

A rather stylish teaser trailer has arrived for the flick, which stars Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton and Sean Harris.

Billed as an “epic fantasy adventure”, the movie is set to tell the tale of Sir Gawain (Patel), King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the huge, emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men known as the Green Knight.

Apparently, Lowery’s aim is to put a fresh spin on the classic, much adapted legend.

The Green Knight is set for a late May US release. We await details of an Australian date.
